Adonis Johnson never knew his legendary father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. This makes it clear that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis goes to Philadelphia, the site of the fight between his father and Rocky. The guy approaches the legendary boxer and asks him to be his trainer. Rocky Balboa sees the strength and dedication in him and takes the talent under his wing, but the former champion must also fight an “adversary” that threatens him with a far more deadly danger than anyone in the ring.
